And why Southwest Greens of Western Canada is the best solution for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional turf on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to heavy foot traffic and wear from golf clubs constantly swinging. Synthetic grass is the better choice considering its ability to withstand these activities far more successfully and still look great in the long run.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass is finicky. It’s tough to take care of and only looks right with the right conditions. Organic turf will grow in various ways in Edmonton from season to season. Certain places may be more dense, while other portions are scant.

Frequent Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you would experience on a golf course, this may require you to mow daily. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Factor in the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you’re looking at a hefty bill.


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which most times, is done with harmful chemicals. This isn’t a single treatment situation. Herbicides are frequently required to keep weeds at bay.


Weevils, ants, grubs — the list goes on. In organic grass, you’ll definitely find one or more of these pests at some point. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which aren’t only damaging to the nature, but also the humans using them.

Water Requirements

Traditional turf requires water to appear lush and green. Merely a few days of dry weather conditions can cause turf appear sad and in need of attention. Hence, traditional turf tee lines have to be watered all the time to make it look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional turf will grow in various ways in Edmonton from one season to the next. Certain places can be thicker, while other areas are scant. If you’ve felt an organic turf tee line, you know how there can be chunks of turf missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

Through artificial turf, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They will never require watering, fertilizing, or mowing, hence, tee lines can remain open consistently. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Due to a high volume of traffic, grass tee lines rarely stay healthy. Installing and switching synthetic tee lines provides organic grass the crucial time it needs to recover.

Better Playability

Artificial turf plays well due to its leveled, predictable surface. You’ll never have to be troubled about the clubface gripping the turf and affecting your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There are fewer chances for injuries because the surface will not become swampy and slippery over heavy rains. Synthetic turf will not get ripped up and cause dips and divots that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make easier and more cost-effective ways to change pieces rather than replacing the whole panel or tee line. Utilizing less expensive items for the swinging areas decreases the overall cost of the project.
